As a “ball and socket” joint, the glenohumeral joint (what we think of as the “shoulder”) has a lot of mobility. In fact, it is typically the most mobile joint in the entire body. With all the shoulder’s mobility comes the inherent need for stability. We get some stability from supporting ligaments and cartilage, but most of its stability comes from a strong, balanced and coordinated muscular system. Common causes of shoulder pain
Non-surgical options: In most cases of shoulder pain or injury, physical therapy is the first line of treatment. Even if you have a labral tear or rotator cuff tear, evidence shows that physical therapy can be just as effective as surgery in many cases. You are also likely to save on costs and time loss. Post-surgical care: Following shoulder surgery such as labral repair, rotator cuff repair, debridement, acromioplasty, joint replacement or reconstruction, physical therapy care is integral in helping you to restore motion, strength and function and to reduce your pain. If you are looking for relief from your shoulder pain, call us now to schedule an examination with one of our skilled orthopedic physical therapists for a specific diagnosis and individualized treatment plan to get you moving in the right direction.
Wrist, thumb or finger pain is a common problem after an injury. People often turn to bracing to help reduce swelling or pain and allow an injury to rest and heal. With the loads of braces out there, it is often hard to know if you can get by with an off-the-shelf brace or if you need custom splinting. Therapists at Armworks Hand Therapy can help you get the best fitting brace for your injury. There are essentially two types of splints: Pre-fabricated and Custom. A pre-fabricated splint is one made to be used for general injuries/ problems and usually come in a small, medium, or large size. A pre-fabricated splint can be very helpful but is not always the right size or does not come in the proper position for certain problems. Often, a custom splint is helpful. A custom splint is made to fit just you. It is made from a low temperature plastic and formed right in the clinic. If you have questions about splinting for the elbow, wrist, or hand, contact us at Armworks Hand Therapy for an evaluation.
